Michelin North America hosted a charity golf tournament in Greenville, South Carolina on October 1st, 2018 to benefit 10 charities in locations where Michelin has a presence. The Woodburn B.F. Goodrich plant is one of their affiliations who nominated Community Transportation Network 3 years ago. Their strategy is to adopt a charity for a three year period and make a transformational investment each year during that period. When the amount was announced for this last year on Monday, the Board of Directors and staff of CTN were astounded by Michelin’s generosity. Michelin has donated $253,300 in total over the 3 year period! With no strings attached, the CTN Board of Directors has used the funds to boost employee benefits, purchase vehicles, and will use more to expand our garage space for more vehicles. All of these investments have created the momentum to build our current and future capacity to assist the mobility of children, youth, seniors, people with disabilities, low income families, and the organizations that serve them. Currently CTN is transporting more the 5,800 riders to new opportunities with 79,490 trips! We cannot thank B.F. Goodrich, our good neighbor, enough for this great opportunity!
